: and we've got a binder full of elbows for mitt romney. you know what time it is. it's go time. [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> romney: i had a question. >> the two candidates go after each other aggressively. >> this is like a boxy match. >> romney: the question was how much did you cut them by. >> they're literally in each other's faces. >> i have an answer. >> tiptiptoed to rudeness. >> an amore assertive president obama. >> obama clearly had a good night. >> it was an act of terror. >> he did call it an act of terror. >> on the question of libya both the president and romney were wrong. >> i'm still trying to get the hang of this thing debating. >> time for him to put together a vision of what he did in the final four years. >> i'll keep improving as time goes on. i have one left. >> we have this show. >> cenk: i hear you on that. although you didn't love what you heard last night. the script began as it did in the first debate as it did between mitt romney and abraham. mitt romney came out strong. here's what happened in the first question. >> romney: i know what it takes to create good job
not even help you very much at all. but after the big bump in the polls that mitt romney got after his dominate performance in the first presidential debate this year, all eyes right now are on whether last night's debate win by president obama will similarly move the needle. we are three weeks out from election day. but people are voting now, right? people are voting early and by absentee ballot, across the country, including in the swing states. and the early word is pretty good for the president. i mean, every snap poll taken after last night's debate showed president obama as the winner of the debate. the polling outfit ppp even did a swing state specific snap poll in colorado. ppp is generally seen as a slightly democratic leaning firm, but their sample for their colorado voters watching the debate last night actually skewed a little bit conservative. and those colorado voters overall thought president obama won. even better for the obama campaign, the margin of victory for the president was particularly large among the independents who were watching that debate. which is exactly
is that mr. romney doesn't like to do stuff the morning after big events. at least, they don't like to have big, public events planned for mr. romney after big events. i mean, traditionally, candidates see, and campaigns see big marquis events like debates or conventions as springboards for the next day's public attention and momentum. but the romney campaign is not like that. after his convention, mr. romney did not do a traditional bus tour or barn storming campaign trip. after his convention, you will recall that mr. romney went on vacation. mr. romney, even after he had such a big win at the first presidential debate, he did not have any big, morning after the debate rallies or anything. he went and did an event that was off his public schedule, but nobody knew for sure he would be anywhere, and there wasn't a big crowd of people around him while he was rallying the troops to his big win. it was a very quiet morning. and then again today, after the second presidential debate, mr. romney did no public events in the morning. i mean, i don't know if it means anything important, but it is a
economy and what each side would do to fix that situation. president obama and governor romney each had a chance to explain what would happen to your taxes they were in charge. >> the question is not where we have been but where we are going. >> it's going to take a different path, not one x have been on, not the one the president described as a top down cut taxes for the rich. that not what i'm going to do. >> it's not possible to come up with enough loopholes for individuals to avoid raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. >> there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> i will take ideas from anybody, democrat or republican as long as they are advancing the cause of making middle class families stronger and giving opportunities to middle class. >> i have got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that not always true but repeating it hoping i will believe it. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> we do better when the middle class is doing well. by giving them those tax cuts they have more money in their pocket so maybe they can buy
mitt romney on the ropes. tonight, we'll tell you who won the debate and if this is a game changer. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >>> everybody here has heard of the new deal? you've heard of the fair deal. you've heard of the square deal. mitt romney's trying to sell you a sketchy deal. >> the thumping continues on the stump. >> please proceed. >> the president breaks out the trapper keeper on mitt romney. >> we don't have to collect a bunch of binders to find talented young women. >> tonight, the untold story of the debate. not only did president obama dominate -- >> candy, what governor romney said just isn't true. >> but mitt romney was just awful. >> i want to make sure we get that for the record. >> bob shrum and michael steele was analysis. cecile richards on romney's growing disaster with women voters. >> they brought us whole binders full of women. >> james hoffa on the president's china smackdown. >> governor, you're the last person who's going to get tough on china. >> and call the wambulance again. >> the problem is, candy crowley sort of waded in to help th

here. and both governor romney and i agree actually that we should lower our corporate tax rate. it's too high. i want to close loopholes that allow companies to deduct expenses when they move to china that allow them to profit offshore and not have to get taxed so they have tax advantages offshore. all those changes in our tax code would make a difference. now, governor romney actually wants to expand those tax breaks. one of his big ideas when it comes to corporate tax reform would be to say if you invest overseas, you make profits overseas, you don't have to pay u.s. taxes. of course if you're a small business or a big business starting up here, you've got to pay even the reduced rate that governor romney is talking about. and it's estimated that that will create 800,000 new jobs. the problem is they'll be in china. or india. or germany. that's not the way we're going to create jobs here. the way we're going to create jobs here is not just to change our tax code, but also to double our exports. we are on pace to double our exports, that's creating tens and thousands of jobs all a

. it takes two people to have a conversation. mitt romney came out with a chain saw. >> after practices more than any candidate he delivered. >> he did not expect romney to hold that heat and romney was able to out obama, obama. >> mitt romney wins preparation and style. >>neil: something here is going on the last 24 hours because don't look now, but this just in: do not resuscitate. the patient is fine. suddenly, out of nowhere, the mormon is stormin'. >> welcome, everyone, i ambassador neil cavuto and this is what a roaring romney sounded like. >> trickle down government is where the president will raise taxes on small business which kills jobs. i want to keep taxes down on small business so we can create jobs. this is about good jobs for the american people. >>neil: he swings, slams, scores, way too early to say if the swing states swinging back to the challenger but after last night, the critics say they probably stopped swinging away. larry said the race ain't over but he also is saying for the challenger it is an uphill fight. what do you make of last night and how this changes the dyn
and afghanistan. serious news tonight on afghanistan, as mitt romney committed without any qualification to the idea that troops should be withdrawn from afghanistan in 2014. this is a reversal for mitt romney, in terms of his previous stated conditions on that idea. he previously said i don't think you set hard and fast deadlines. that was to abc news on july 29th. i think the biggest mistake he, meaning president obama has made in afghanistan was announcing the specific date that he would withdraw. he said this president has done an extraordinary thing he announced the date of our withdrawal. that was wrong. mr. romney today just flat out reversing his previous rejection to there being a withdrawal date from afghanistan, as he very tightly hugged president obama on everything from drones to egypt to syria to a number of other matters tonight on which there was less disagreement than we might have expected before the debate. chris matthews? what's your take? >> let me take my favorite role for a minute, my role of critic. you think about the united states. let's talk about our country i
forced, aggressive and challenger in mitt romney. we are gong to get to more and more of the debate tape shortly but we take you to the day after on the campaign trail. first, the president about two and a half nours ago in iowa. >> governor romney has been running around talking about his five-point plan for the economy. here's a tip. usually when a politician tells you he's going to wait until after the election to explain a plan to you they don't have a pleasant surprise in store for you. >> now mitt romney in virginia about 90 minutes ago. >> i love these debates. you know? these things are great. i think it's interesting that the president still doesn't have an agenda for a second term. don't you think that it's time for him to finally put together a vision of what he'd do in the next four years if he were elected? >> as i said, for the next hour, we'll review last night and look at how we move forward to monday's final debate in florida which is on foreign policy. and speaking of foreign affairs, near the end of the long island cage match last night that libya came up and the
came out with a strong and aggressive performance against mitt romney on foreign policy. the first instant poll from cbs shows 53% of undecided voters say president obama came out on top, just 23% say toward romney. but there are some differing opinions out there. according to cnn poll, only 40% of viewers say romney won but 60% say he is ready to handle the responsibilities of president. and 32% of independents say they are now more likely to vote for romney after last night's performance. that is surprising since by most accounts president obama effectively painted romney as untested reckless and inconsistent when it comes to foreign policy. he also mocked romney's knowledge of the military with the most popular zinger of the night. when romney complained that the navy has its smallest fleet in nearly 100 years, here is the president's response. >> obama: governor we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military's changed. we have these things called aircraft carriers where plan
're living paycheck to paycheck. >> yes. >> for that reason you're inclined to vote for mitt romney. tell me about that. >> i'm more for mitt romney now just because i feel like he's going to have more of a plan. he's a businessman. businessmen can take care of it. he took care of massachusetts. i think he could take care of us. >> and in the back there, you're a student. sophomore. first time voter. >> yes. >> you said that on the one hand you like the fact that the president's trying to make it easier for getting loans for school. but not getting a job afterwards. so where do you fall? >> after this debate, i'm leaning more towards president obama. he did detail a plan on getting jobs after i graduate. >> and social issues you said moved you. what about that? >> yeah. as a younger voter i think social issues have more of an effect on my vote. i think the president's views on gay marriage and abortion line up with mine. >> a lot of talk about women's issues. a lot of talk about that. valerie, you're still not persuaded though. why not? >> i really like what mitt romney had to say about the
," listen up, candidate romney! he's talking about you! >> let me warn you and let me warn the nation... against this whole invasion that says of course we believe these things. we believe in social security. we believe in work for the unemployed. we believe in saving homes. we believe in all of these things. but we do not like the way the present administration is doing them. we will do all of them. we will do more of them. we will do them better. and most important of all the doing of them will not cost anybody anything. [ applause ] >> jennifer: okay. first of all i admit last night was rough. even though i did predict here on this program that i thought the president would lose the first debate. i really, really didn't want it to happen! i was so hoping to be proven wrong. now, i admit it. progressives, you admit it, too. you were, before last night feeling your oats, you might have been getting a little bit cocky. some of you might have been able to -- been calling the race, cenk uygur and then last night
anything, he stood up to a bully. in the first debate mitt romney acted as though he was in charge, that rules don't apply to him. last night, that ended with the resounding wallop from president obama. right from the start, the president literally stood up to governor romney. and in doing that, he stood up to the middle class. >> what governor romney said just isn't true. not true, governor romney. and when governor says the challenges are obama didn't try, that's not true. >> and production of gas is not 9%. >> it's just not true. very little of what governor romney just said is true. >> very little of what governor romney just said is true. it was the theme we heard all night on issue after issue. the 47%, the phony romney economic policy, the romney tax giveaway to the rich, on women's rights, on immigration, on the auto bailout. but the most striking response of the whole night came on the suggestion that he played politics over the death of the libyan ambassador. president obama showed presidential leadership and made the governor look small. >> the day after the attack, gove
it an act of terror. >> this morning, team romney saw the damage like ringside cutmen rushing in with water and ice his coaches tried to mitigate the wounds. >> it was a passing comment about acts of terror in general. it was not a claim that this was the result of a terrorist attack. >> this president has been totally inconsistent if not dishonest about what happened in libya. this is the united states of america. and for our state department to be saying one thing, the white house to be saying another, i mean it's like an episode of the keystone cops with these guys. >> just to clarify, who are the keystone cops here? if romney land is feeling bruised the tale of the tape last night was a t.k.o. the president won painting romney as an out of touch plutocrat, calling romney out for paying 14% in taxes, letting detroit go bankrupt and pushing a sketchy budget on the american public. he saved his blow for the most powerful of the night. >> i think the president's campaign has tried to characterize me as someone who's different than who i am. i care about 100% of the american people. >> when
on the chin, governor romney tried an upper cut and whiffed. >> you said in the rose garden the day after the attack it was an act of terror. it was not a spontaneous demonstration is that what you're saying? >> please proceed, governor. >> i want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in benghazi an act of terror. >> get the transcript. >> he did in fact, sir. let me call it an act of terror. >> can you say that a little louder, candy? >> he did call it an act of terror. >> this morning, team romney saw the damage like ringside cutmen rushing in with water and ice his coaches tried to mitigate the wounds. >> it was a passing comment about acts of terror in general. it was not a claim that this was the result of a terrorist attack. >> this president has been totally inconsistent if not dishonest about what happened in libya. this is the united states of america. and for our state department to be saying one thing, the white house to be saying another, i mean it's like an episode of the keystone cops with these guys. >> jus
the debate? won debate. you think it was a draw? >> i believe it was a draw. >> did anybody think mitt romney won the debate? not at all. we also have some deciders from this undecided group. matt you say you're going to vote for president obama. why? >> i saw the president is decisive when he spoke about his actions against bin laden. he made that decision. he knows what he's doing and he had to go against some of his cabinet. >> you were in new york on 9/11. >> his comments about the young lady who was four and is now 14. >> you were firmly for mitt romney even though you thought he lost. >> i thought obama did a great job but i felt very, it was very interesting to see romney's views on still bringing in the economy with foreign issues. >> because the economy is very important. there's a big unemployment rate. everybody knows somebody who has been hit by the foreclosure crisis. jane, you came in leaning for romney. you're leaving leaning for the president. >> right. >> what happened? >> i was impressed by his focus and strategies related to foreign policy. i believe the president wears man
in new york. in term of what happened tonight, president obama and mitt romney had an intense and spirited and at times very, very confrontational 90-minute debate in front of a crowd of undecided voters. they weren't supposed to talk directly to each other and they did it plenty. it had audible gasp and cheers from the crowd even though they were admonished not to do that as they chad traded baushs on a number of issues. they started with the economy. >> we have not made the progress we need to make to put people to work. that's why i have a five-point plan that gets america 12 million new jobs in four years and a rise in take-home pay. it will help jeremy get a job when he is out of school and help people unemployed right now. >> he has a one-point plan and that is to make sure that folks at the top play by a different set of rules. that's been his philosophy in the private sector, as governor and as a presidential candidate. >> president obama was noticeably looser and more aggressive than at the first debate. at one point saying mitt romney is offering the american people
of gas is not 9%. >> it's just not true. very little of what governor romney just said is true. >> very little of what governor romney just said is true. it was the theme we heard all night on issue after issue. the 47%, the phony romney economic policy, the romney tax giveaway to the rich, on women's rights, on immigration, on the auto bailout. but the most striking response of the whole night came on the suggestion that he played politics over the death of the libyan ambassador. president obama showed presidential leadership and made the governor look small. >> the day after the attack, governor, i stood in the rose garden and i told the american people and the world that we were going to find out exactly what happened, that this was an act of terror, and i also said that we're going to hunt down those who committed this crime. and then a few days later i was there greeting the caskets, coming into andrew's air force base and grieving with the families. and the suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the secretary of state, our u.n. ambassador, anybody on my team would play politi
romney under pressure to crush it tonight. stage is set. the coin has been flipped. all the practice, all the pregaming comes down to tonight, but with both sides getting their game faces on in these final hours. >> i think mitt romney has an opportunity to shake up the race tonight. obviously, you know, expectations, both sides have been playing the expectations game. the reality is that challengers win the first debate more often than not. >> i think if mitt is just mitt, he's going to do just fine because i've been to over 100 events with mitt romney. small settings, big sets. he's compassionate, confident, passionate, energetic. he's all of these things. >> today, new polls shows ohio solidly in the obama dugout, but in two other major battlegrounds, the race has tightened. the president still leading, but romney has narrowed the gap in virginia as well as florida. >> these states are really getting tight so such a degree that a great performance by romney tonight could change the dynamic. >> this is big stakes. this is really an opportunity where people -- >> tonight is a huge debate
, every day. the polls are bad for romney and good for obama in the swing states. but the national numbers are as tight as they get. the primaries are over, the conventions are over, but the debates, the home stretch, starts right now. >>> all right. the pre-season is officially over. game on. thank you for joining us tonight for msnbc's coverage of this first presidential debate of the 2012 campaign. i'm rachel maddow here at our headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed schultz, reverend al sharpton, chris hayes, and steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell will be our man in the spin room tonight. and the one and only chris matthews is at the university of denver, which is the site of tonight's debate. chris, i've been watching you this past hour. i can sense the excitement that you feel, that i feel as well. i mean, it is a big night when these candidates speak at their conventions, but tonight the tv audience for this debate could be almost twice the size as the convention audience. just a huge night. what are each of these guys thinking they need to do tonight? >> well, i think obama's the
already voted. but the numbers are amazing. president obama leads mitt romney by 28 points among early voters. it should be noted that the romney campaign has been complaining about it and trying to discredit it. today mitt romney's political director released a memo attacking the methodology calling this flawed and untrue. nobody complains about the methodology when they are ahead. the romney folks have only recently stopped complaining about the methodology of all of the polling being done. their complaining stopped when romney started doing better in the polls a couple weeks ago. in terms of the swing states, this is how things look. president obama in pennsylvania with a 4-point lead. the president down three points in just the span of a couple weeks. in ohio president obama up by 5 points in a poll released over the weekend. in florida it's mitt romney up by 1 point in north carolina. in virginia romney by 1 point. in iowa the latest poll shows the race to be tied. a new "usa today" gallup poll of the swing states shows mitt romney with an overall 4-point lead in the swing states
>> governor romney mentioned mali not once, not twice, not three times, but four times. and you know, mali isn't just a >>> tonight, the home stretch. no more binders, no more bayonets, no more big bird. just one sprint to the finish. >> we can handle two more weeks of the attacks that are coming from barack obama but we cannot handle four more years of what he's given us. >> you know i mean what i say. you know that i do what i say i'm going to do. >> the ultimate question, who will win the white house? tonight, newt gingrich argues for mitt romney. beau biden takes president obama's side. >>> also, what is called a $100 billion failure. >>> can mitt romney win without it? can the president, for that matter? >>> who is public enemy number one, iraq or al qaeda? this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. our big story tonight is the biggest story in the country, of course, the race for the white house. 14 days to go, the latest cnn poll of polls has the president and mitt romney locked in a dead heat at 47% each. it couldn't be closer. of course, both sides looking for so
us. last night, he came prepared to play, president obama crushing mitt romney, starting right off the bat when he said hey dude, you don't have a five-point plan, you have a one point plan, which is all about regarding the rich, the rich people like you and screwing the middle class. great performance by president obama. let's talk about it, but first we'll take a little timeout to get the latest update. lisa ferguson standing by. good morning. >> good morning everyone. president obama does have a slight edge right now in who voters think won the debate. the new poll has him at 46% compared to mitt romney's 39. it was a much sharper and more aggressive president obama that we heard coming from him last night. we'll have a lot of fact-checking and explaining for you. i want to start off with libya. this is an area romney had a chance to come out on top and should have come out on top but this turned out to be one of the president's strongest moments of the night. >> the suggestion that anybody on my team or the secretary of state, our u.n. ambassador, anybody on my team would play
